Love this version of Pig in a Pen

Pig In A Pen Lyrics
By: Bill Monroe

I got a pig at home in a pen
Corn to feed him on
All I need's a pretty little girl
To feed I'm when I'm gone

Going up on a mountain
To sow a little cane
Raise a barrel of sorghum
Sweet little Liza Jane

Black clouds arising
Sure sign of rain
Put that old gray bonnet
On little Liza Jane

Yonder comes that gal of mine
How do you think I know
Know her by that gingham gown
Hanging down so low

Bake them biscuits baby
Bake em good and brown
When you get them biscuits baked
We're Alabama bound

JG - I've had this song stuck in my head the past few weeks after re-acquainting myself with Old & In The Way (triggered by Monte's post about Vassar Clements). Great, great song, and utterly un-pop:

Bake them biscuits baby
Bake em good and brown
When you get them biscuits baked
We're Alabama bound

Now that's a fine example of archetypal Americana imagery!

I could never really understand the lyrics and while listening today finally said "I've gotta look up these lyrics"

Have always loved this tune.

Got Old & in the Way Breakdown a few years back, an excellent addition to my meager collection of commercial releases.
